I've been experimenting with spelt flour once again. This time I combined it with a bit of almond flour. Bob's Red Mill carries the most beautiful almond flour! I love baking with it, it adds such nice texture and flavor. I had a bag of organic frozen blackberries left from my recent shopping spree at Whole Foods and a produce drawer filled with way too many apples, so both of these went into the mix as well.
I was all set to make muffins when I remembered I hadn't yet tried out my new mini bundt pan. Isn't it the cutest?! I went on a tiny shopping spree at Target recently and picked up a few springy things. It's been raining every gosh darn day for weeks now and I needed a little pick me up. At least we haven't had any baseball sized hail to deal with. Yikes!
I was worried my sweet little cakes would stick to the pan but with a bit of patience and a butter knife they popped out quite easily. Don't you hate it when you put time and energy...and money into making something yummy in your kitchen and it flops in the end? I'm happy to report, this recipe is no flop. In fact, these baby bundts are incredibly moist and ever so tasty. I can't wait to bake up another batch. :)
Here, try a bite!
